That would certainly be the case. The whole multiple emperor idea is more of
a thought experiment, really. As Phil and others have pointed out, every
explicit reference to an Emperor has implied that he was the only member of
that House that held office during his House's turn at the Throne.

An interesting question - How will history refer to Zerika/Tortaalik when
they talk about the 18th Phoenix reign?
